A mathematical model of an operational military Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) is constructed integrating both impatient and ambulatory care outputs. Incorporating the interdependencies in staffing and facilities utilization, the model holds promise for extension to civilian HMO's with parametric changes in methods of practice. The model may be used descriptively to indicate maximal patient care levels in specific patient categories (i.e., the derivation of the production possibilities frontier for health care) and to identify bottleneck constraints. As an optimization tool, budgetary allocation decisions are facilitated in both the long and short run, in terms of maximizing patient flow and minimizing the cost of providing for a given eligible population, respectively
